A shallow pick pass was made, as white flaky soil, mottled with gylestra began to pop up all over, in this trench as well as other nearby trenches at the same elevation.  This must be explained as redeposited gylestra, as stratigraphy of trenches in previous years indicates the Archaic and then the Orientalizing destruction layer are beneath this.  This soil is designated Locus 2 .  Elevations were taken:  northwest corner 27.67 m, northeast corner 27.73 m, southeast corner 27.70 m, southwest corner 27.57 m, and center 27.60 m.  One special find was generated in Locus 1 , a procession frieze plaque fragment .


The soil of Locus 2 was generally starved of artifacts in three or our passes, except for a fragment of a cavetto .


Locus 1:

  • 34 terracotta fragmetns
  • 13 ceramic fragmetns



Locus 2:

  • 5 terracotta fragments
  • 3 ceramic fragments
